Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Good enough for me when Mrs. Atlas weighs in.

All gear fit in the trunk. Max had the back seat to himself.

No emotions or butt hurt here! It would not even bother me if someone asked why I paid good money for such crap. The only person who's opinion matters on such stuff is the person I sleep with at night.

And, I can assure you that is not, and never will be, VV.

Note:
Today is the first day of staycation. I already cut my hair and weighed in - down 6 pounds.
Prolly going to work Thursday so I'm not buried when get back. Meeting an old friend for coffee on Wednesday. Haven't seen him since March 2019. Pandemic disrupted that.. Going to do some yard work and miscellaneous other things around the house as I see fit.. Already have a list prepared. Stopping for coffee now. The wife is working this week but from home save for 1 day. Perhaps we'll have lunch one day. Usually I'd get a big mileage week when I do this. That was before I became a former cyclist.
tl;dr
No bike riding this week.

Expect lots of quality content, maybe.

When I head to TN in a few weeks, I'll be deposing a graduate of VV's school. I'll have to break out the longhorn bolo tie slide and go big.

After living here nearly 40 year, the first real rain of the wet season still catches me off guard. But it doesn't seem to catch the plants off guard. Already the grass in the back yard, which I could have sworn was all dead from not being watered for months, is showing a surprising amount of green. Some of the plants, like the Hydrangea, are confused, because their biological programming is telling them to drop their leaves and go dormant, while the arrival of rain is telling them to spring to life. Biological programming always wins, though.

Well, considering the corn cob pipe is a mountain hillbilly thing, I'll leave that to the Tennesseeians.

Chewing tobacco would be more fitting down here, but I don't partake.
